“Boy Meets World” alum Trina McGee recently announced that she is pregnant with her 4th child at the age of 54. The actress shared the news to her Instagram on June 3rd saying, “At the tender age of 54 I have found myself pregnant, Please bless us with your prayers for a safe delivery. Thank you.” She captioned the photo saying, “Gonna sign off social media for a bit. Thanks for your prayers and well wishes in advance.”

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, McGee shared her excitement for her pregnancy. “Just sheer joy, sheer joy, and I don’t partake in any of the negativity anybody has to say about it. I am so happy,” she continued. “I have been blessed, and that’s it. And all I’m concerned about — I only have one job now — is to have this baby, and that’s what I’m about.”

McGee already has three children: Ramia, 31, Langston, 29 and Ezra, 25. She shares two of them with her ex-husband Courtland Davis and shares another child with a previous partner. The actress has been married to Marcello Thedford for 16 years after meeting 28 years ago in Rome while shooting Sylvester Stallone’s 1996 film, Daylight. McGee said in her interview with Entertainment Tonight that she had been wanting a baby with Thedford “for quite a while.” The pair struggled to conceive, so they traveled to Belize and worked with  Garifuna people to discover natural remedies like taking medicinal herbs. The 54-year-old credits her pregnancy to natural remedies, herbs and a low-stress environment.

While speaking with Good Morning America, McGee opened up about people criticizing her decision to expand her family at her age. “It’s an individual decision, but be realistic about it. Be realistic about your lifespan — make provisions. And understand that when you do have a baby at this age, what you should have for them is a lot of wisdom — and that’s the beauty of the situation.”
